Engineering Feats and Music



My children seem to always focus on one particular subject at a time. They play with anything relating to it very intensely. Abigail's life revolves around music these days. She wakes up singing "You are my sunshine", literally. It's the first thing we hear through the baby monitor. How's that for waking up on the right side of the bed? Throughout the day she continually sings all kinds of songs. Currently she's really into the Backyardigans. That's a children's show Grampy really likes and so he has about 20 episodes taped for them. Abigail memorizes the songs very easily and has a small arsenal at her disposal by now. She doesn't discriminate against any genre of music. Unfortunate side-effect: You can't get the tune out of your head and just have to sing it!

Nathan has been really into building things. He'll really love LEGOs once he gets older. Or maybe now is the time? The other day he tried to make something that leans over but is held up by one of those green thingies you see in the picture. Thingy - aren't you impressed with my technical vocabulary? Anyways, he built the structure you see below and was just funny to me since his dad is a Structural Steel Detailer and is always into those kind of things. Genetics, eh?
